The New Jersey Science League is a competitive organization operating within the State of New Jersey. The Science League was founded in 1962 by Dr. Mal Sturchio, a professor of chemistry at Fairleigh Dickinson University. NJ Science League was originally founded for chemistry students only; however, it now offers competitive science exams in chemistry, physics, biology, earth science, and environmental science for all beginning students. There are also competitions at the second year level for chemistry, biology, and physics.
The competition consists of a total of 4 subject tests, given between January and April. The competition is both individual and team-based. Students within any one testing area are ranked with each other based on their highest scores from 3 of the 4 exams given. Students who complete 3 exams receive certificates for participation. The top 10% of students who receive certificates also receive a student plaque.
In the area of team competition, up to 4 students may compete on a team. A team's score is taken from the two highest individual scores in the testing area for that test. The final team score for the year is the sum of the team scores on each test. Schools are ranked, and top 10 schools (not 10%) receive team plaques.
